You can not do this? Have you ever look yourself in the mirror, you look fat, ugly, you are not beautiful at all, said, someone. Why don’t you exercise, lose some weight, behave that way, you are a girl, do not do this or do that? You are good for nothing.

Suddenly, she looks around who is saying this to her but no one is seen.

She thought does outer beauty is what that always matter? Why people tend to judge everybody but it is also true, I do not look beautiful at all, far from the society norms, she started feeling depressed again and start eating as eating relieves her stress. She is eating even when she knows she doesn’t have to and this, in turn, causing more depression to her.

Then, came the voice again, don’t listen to her, she doesn’t want you to succeed, you are capable of accomplishing anything you want. Why are you eating this much, you are beautiful, people have to say something, don’t listen to them, everybody, you come across, loves you, don’t you see that, looks don’t matter and why are you torturing yourself please don’t do this to yourself.

Now, she starts becoming more restless, what is happening, is she gone mad, she is actually hearing voices.

These voices are not of people but they are coming from her inner mind. Those are reflections of thoughts that are going in her mind, those two perspectives of society she heard all her life. Nobody asked her, what she wants, everybody want her to become as they like her to see and in this process, she becomes like that, lonely and depressed, who does not love herself or afraid of doing anything, and does not like to talk much and doubt every single person she met and more importantly she lost her true self and she has lost her confidence.

She needs help, but whom to ask, she doesn’t know as sympathy and empathy is different and she does not think anyone can ever understand her or even will try to understand her even once .

Today, mental health has become, one serious issue, and we as a society are very much responsible for it. Why it is difficult to accept someone as they are, why we have to judge someone on their looks, ignoring their rest capabilities, and make them feel undesirable. They, start, self-doubting themselves and we lost one another life to depression, and unknowing what we take as a casual remark can actually cause an adverse effect on someone ‘s mind.

सूरज की किरणें ड़ूब गई

अंधेरा फिर छाया

साथ में काली अंधेरी रात भी लाया

मन सहम गया , कुछ घबराया

हिम्मत टूटने लगी

आत्मविश्वास भी डगमगाया

जब कुछ नज़र ना आया

यह वो रात थी जब चंद भी ना जाने कहाँ छुप गया

रोशनी का कोई साधन नज़र ना आया o

रास्ते खोने लगे , मार्ग भी हर्षाया

मंज़िलें ओर दूर होने लगी

तब समय भी मुस्कुराया

अपनी बेबसी में

मेरे मन में भी आया

हार हो चुकी अब

परिश्रम व्यर्थ बहाया

जब गिरना ही लिखा है किस्मत में

फिर क्यों तू ऊपर आया

हमेशा वो नहीं मिलता जो तुम चाहते हो

पर क्या कौशिश भी नहीं करोगे

बिना परीक्षा दिए

तुम पहले ही परिणाम कैसे जान जायोगे

क्या बिना जाले दीपक रोशनी दे सकता है

क्या बिना साहस के युद्ध जीता जा सकता है

हार मान लेना ही सबसे बड़ी हार है

और फिर पछताना जीवन भर का

क्यों काश का ही रह जाऐगा बस फिर ये फसाना ।

इन हवाओं ,इन फ़िज़ाओं का रुख

इन में बहती एक आशा

इन आशाओं और निराशाओं की एक

अलग ही परिभाषा

एक अलग ही रंजिश

एक अलग ही एहसास

ये कुछ कह रही है ,कुछ तो बताना चाहती है

इन के साथ बह जाओ

कुछ अपना कुछ हमारा भला कर जाओ

मंज़िल मिलती नहीं मात्र सोच लेने से

हर संभव प्रयास

हर इशारे की समझ जरूरी

भाग्य में जो लिखा है वही होगा

ये जरूरी नहीं

क्योंकि कुछ भी हमारी सोच के परे नहीं।

Doctor ? But why ?

Well ,it has been asked by many people I come across what made me to choose my career as doctor ? And is it worth choosing profession in medical field even after seeing what is happening with doctors presently . Violence against doctors is rising at alarming rates and even the working conditions and pay scale are also not that good as it is seen. People don’t respect the work medical fraternity do for mankind .

Back to the topic , what made me choose medical is something kinda love for medicine and biology I have . I will not say to safe lives and serve people ,obviously I want to do that and you will find it too cliche as everyone say this but what can be better profession than medicine for it, if I would be able to safe even one life , everything else become meaningless and if I would be able to help and aware people about health whether mental or physical well being and treat them , I would be one happy person. I would not be able to explain this in words.

It all started one day, in 6th standard , there was this random discussion going on in class who want to become what in future . I answered doctor. May be nobody at this age might think it to be that serious topic to be discussed . I was too young at that time to think what actually it all means and how much efforts and hard work to be done to become one but this thought kinda struck in my mind that I want to be a doctor one day and coming from family full of engineers this is some new thing .As years past and I read more about biology and life , evolution , science it amazed me to the core how complex a human being is inside out and I want to know more and more , I realised how much interest I have in science particularly biology and when it become my passion , my dream I do not even realised .

It was not at all an easy journey I could say. It had all the up -downs and they still continue and at many times I think of quiting and question myself , do you want it to end like this ? One of my biggest support system are my parents because whenever negativity has cribbed inside me , they know exactly how to motivate me again and I am ready to again stand and try my best. If you have a dream , it would not be easy at all and if you get something so easily , you will not value it. Can you appreciate light if you don’t know what darkness is ? You have to fight for it , fight your demons . You have to come out of your comfort zones. I am no one to advice anything to anyone , still there is long way to go , just one step is compeleted but I can just say , whenever thought of giving up of your dream come up in your mind , just ask yourself why have you started and is this what you actually want ? Prepare yourself for all the sleepless night, spent in over thinking or studying or trying to find the answers to the questions running inside you ,at times you will feel demotivated and frusted but give yourself time, before taking any impulsive decision ,think before it is too late and you will regret it whole your life. You have to be patient , courageous and positive . You have to take risks and decisions. Sometimes you do have to let go few things.

For me , dream I saw when I was too young to even understand what actually it means , I m living it , and in the end, yes it is worth but still there is long way to go and pursue my passion further and learn as everybody says- studies for a doctor can never get completed if you stop learning you will not succed and more you know medicine , more complex and interesting it get .

Go for your dream , your passion , and in the end , it will be all worth and everything will make perfect sense and satisfaction you get, can not be priced

HOPE YOU ALL HAVE LIKED THIS. I have written , something different this time.

I shall share my whole M.B.B.S and medical college experience , how I prepared for it etc some other time .

THANK YOU for reading this😊😊

एक सोच ……

दुनिया में कितने गम है

मेरे गम कितने कम है

हम तुम तो बस रोते रहते

ये ऐसे क्यों हुआ

ये ऐसा क्यों है जैसे

सवालो में ही खोए रहते

छोटी -सी ज़िन्दगी

निकल गई रो- रो कर

थोड़ा तो हँस ले

थोड़ा तो जी ले

एक बार बस एक बार

तू दुनिया के परे सोच ले

फिर देख एक नया सवेरा आऐगा और

तू खुले आसमान में खो जाऐगा

उन्मुक्त गगन में जब तू पंख उड़ाऐगा

बंद पिंजरे के सारे सुख भूल जाऐगा ।

Tsaunami of thoughts run through her head

As high as waves one would expect

Each giving a reason to be afraid even more

Her face turns red , palms sweaty

Skipping heartbeats , sensations of pace

Volcano is about to burst

She can’t sit

She can’t stand

Her body shakes , suffocation she feels

Earthquake inside is at full pace

Burdened with expectations , her mind just freeze

Detached she felt

Fears cribs in

Past to present , present to future

Her procrastination never ends

Personality she wear is not her true self

Her secret self , hidden under layers

Her inner self is screaming

To relax a little bit

Escape to the place , where anxiety does not come in .

लाइफ इन लॉकडाउन

किसने सोचा था एक दिन ऐसा भी आऐगा,थम सी जाऐगी कुछ ज़िंदगी

है सब अपने घर में ही बन्दी,सड़के हो गई है सुनी

रेल,हवाई जहाज सब रुक गए,मोटर-गाड़ियों का शोर हो गया कही गुम

प्रदुषण भी कही छुप गया,बाजारों की भी रौनक ख़त्म

बंद पड़े है सब दफ्तर, मॉल और कारखाने, स्कूल और कॉलेज में भी पसरी शांति

चारो और है सन्नाटा ,रेस्टोरेंट और सिनेमाघरों में भी पड़ा है ताला

और अस्पताल में है भीड़ भारी

डॉक्टर, स्वस्थ्यकर्मी , सफ़ाई कर्मचारी , पुलिस ही बने है संगी

फ़र्ज़ अपना निभाने के लिए , अपने आप को भी वो भूल गए

फिर भी प्रहार वो खा रहे

डरा सहमा बैठा हैं मनुष्य ,एक दूसरे से मिलने से भी अब है वो घबराहता

ना दिन का है पता और ना है रात को चैन

बार बार हाथ धुलने को आतुर , साफ सफ़ाई में अब हो गया वो चतुर

इतने मुखौटे पहने मानव को मास्क एक ही चाहिए

सैनिटाइजर की एक शीशी , अमृत समान मान रहा

समान एकत्रित करने की होड़ से , सब अचंभित है

खुद को पहले बचा ले , मानवता से क्या मतलब है

हमेशा छुट्टी पाने की वो चाह भी अब ना मन मे आती

उसको दफ्तर और स्कूल की याद बहुत सताती

पर वो चिड़ियों की मधुर -मधुर चहचाना ,वो समुंदर की लहरों का संगीत

वो बारिश की बूंदो का राग,फिर मन बह ला रहा

खुले नीले आसमान में इंद्र धनुष भी अपनी खुशी जता रहा

ठंडी ठंडी पवन का झोंका एहसास अलग करवा रहा

हरे -भरे झूमते पेड़ -पौधों से,मन – मोहक फूलो की खुशबू से

पर्यावरण फिर इतरा रहा ,उत्साह नया जगा रहा

शायद जो भूल गया था इंसान , याद उसको वही दिलवा रहा

क्या पता अब मनुष्य समझ पाए

वो प्रकृति से है , प्रकृति उससे नही

प्रकृति तो सबकी जननी है

सिर्फ तेरा ही उस पर हक नहीं ।

when it is getting darker day by day , and

you see no light come in your way

just remember why you started

you have come a long way

with so many years of hardwork and struggle

you should be proud of them

dont make them look so small

fight your demons

they are not stronger than you

in every night, there is a moon

not bright as sun

but it still shines

that’s hope my dear

which never fade, and

again a new day always come

with a sunshine.

Empty souls or empty spaces?

I know , there is lot going on around. This coronavirus is mentally draining everybody and there are many people , for whom this lockdown period is appearing very difficult to pass and most of you must have been finding it very frustrating. You all must be missing meeting friends and relatives, few of you must be stuck in some other city alone away from your family , few must be missing going out like before and I can even say , now many of you must be missing your school and offices and no more want more holidays . But , why to focus on negativity , let us focus on positive aspect of it. There are plenty of things , you can do to keep yourself sane. In this present time , your mental health and physical health both are very important . You can do medication, you can go on your terraces to walk etc. You can again start doing your long lost hobby whatever it is . You can read any novel or any other book of your interest or you can complete watching that series for which you never got time before. You can also learn some new skill like cooking , gardening etc. And also not to forget,our technology is so advanced now you can still chit chat with your friends and relatives . More importantly , you finally got some time to spent with your family you are craving for so long. If you think negative only , you will see only negative . Be positive. Be safe Stay home You don’t even now how many lives you all are saving by staying at home This time too will pass.

” when you change the way you think , you change the way you feel , when you change the way you feel , you change the way you act, when you change the way you act, you change your life. It starts by changing the way ……? ”

Everytime I read these lines written by DANIEL CHIDIAC , I always wonder what is the limiting factor to our happiness? What actually success or failure in life is ? Who defines them for you that whether you succeeded or failed ? Who told you to get happy or sad on that particular situation ? Are all these things decided by you yourself or someone else ? Our mind is the most powerful weapon in disguise we all have . It is due to this mind only a person can think whatever he / she want , our mind works continuously since we are born till we will die , it can think those things also which can happen or can not happen that’s its power. May be for some of you it is imagination power but what our mind can do is still to be decoded completely.

I always strongly believe in the fact that if we think negative , we will always attract negativity around ourselves and will not ever be able to see any positive side to it. As coin has two sides just like that our thinking has two sides too , positive and negative and it all depends on us which side we would like to choose and act. As said by LORD BUDDHA –




So , it is our thinking only on which our happiness or success depends . It is not possible by a human being to control all situations , you don’t have power to predict future and sometimes you do feel helpless as you can not do anything to change it but how you deal with it defines everything. Let us take the example of present competitive world , of which we all are part of , running in this horse race , without even knowing why? If sometime due to any reason , you fail but if you keep on thinking that I have failed, it will affect your state of mind , your inner peace and you will feel depressed and will have negative feeling for everything and you will be afraid of doing or starting things again or to try something new but does failing once means that you will never succeed in future and will fail again without even trying ? Does that means your life is over ? How can you say what will happen in future when future itself depends on your present ?

No , these failures does not define you or your life . It is just your way of thinking that actually define everything whether you have learned from your previous mistakes or not and what further actions you take to improve and succeed .Once the former President of SOUTH AFRICA and a great social rights activist, NELSON MANDELA had said –


If in any competition , someone wins and is still not happy so don’t you think it is contradictory as he is winner, he should be happy and satisfied but he is sad and unsatisfied . On the other hand, if some one fails and still happy and satisfied that yes , he /she is failed but have gained some experience , is’nt it more better because your positive thinking will give you more power and courage to attempt it once more without even knowing whether you succeed or fail in that attempt too.

Outcome of anything is not in your hand . Sometimes human do think if I got this , I would be happy but that thing also does not make you happy or satisfied as it is all in your mind . What you think and how you deal with problems in your life , is important in the end as life is not bed of roses with only soft petals , it has with it its thorns too.
